This massive two-volume catalogue documents the first major exhibition to examine the preeminent role of Tung Ch'i-ch'ang in the revolutionary transformation of Chinese painting and calligraphy during the late 16th century, presenting 74 scrolls and albums by the artist and nearly 100 works by notable 17th-century painters who were strongly influenced by his stylistic innovations. Supplemented by hundreds of illustrations and extensive commentaries on the featured works (the majority drawn from important Chinese collections), essays by ten scholars examine Tung's career and the profound significance of his achievements as a painter, calligrapher and connoisseur.
